University of Dayton: Stander Symposium


A Brief History of the Stander Symposium

The University of Dayton instituted the annual Brother Joseph W. Stander Symposium tradition in 1989 as a way to honor the late Bro. Joseph W. Stander S.M., Professor of Mathematics and Provost.  The Stander Symposium celebrates academic excellence and showcases student research and creative endeavors.  The day of the Stander Symposium is considered an alternative day of learning where regularly scheduled university classes are not held and students are instead encouraged to present their skills and knowledge in a public forum.  The Symposium features a keynote speaker, poster sessions, hands-on activities, performances, art exhibits, oral presentations, and highlights of capstone course work.
